. >> it really was. >> mike barn cal and peter gammons here with us as well. >> it was an absolutely unbelievable evening. it was an unbelievable year. >> yeah. can you imagine. >> we're here opening day. you're not a front-runner, one of the most loyal red sox fans. you go to the first game of the year and last game of the year. >> exactly. >> they are winning the world series in boston. but we were here the first game of the year and it was just nice. nobody expected much out of this team. and it was a nice week or two of baseball. and then april 15th happened. and i remember mike, who always has been the guy -- mike you're always the guy, you called me up when i was in florida, you said this is going on. it's always about games. you called me up when they had the first game back here at fenway. and you said, joe, get in front of your tv set, you're about to see something special. you're about to see a city come around a baseball team. like never before. >> well, the team exelmplifies like never before. the marathon bombing, it was like a family picnic was bombed. everyone knows somebody who ra
their identify long cal struggles and allows them to take some control of the narrative and maybe put forward some ideas of their own, instead, though, they continue to litigate the past, which is really sad, because this an opportunity for republicans to take hold again. i mean the public is not happy with the website. this is really a chance for them, and instead they harp back on the old rhetoric. you're listening to cruz. it's embarrassing, and i think the party deserves more than this. >> does the overreach harm president obama? >> it further discredits ted cruz that it is such bomb bass particular rhetoric. i don't think anybody sees the president abusing his power. how about syria? he says i will go to congress. when they make those charges it does reduce their credibility. >> in many case progressives and people on the left thought the president would always go for compromise. >> and should have been more of a dictate or. they wanted him to seize more power. >> you know, abbey, when you look at the fact that ted cruz today started going after hillary clinton with the fear mongering an
anybody not from kansas should do oz cal goerall. >> those folks worked hard to go down the yellow ]. road. end of the day when they got there and pulled back the curtain, they found there was nothing that they didn't already have. and, as we pull back the curtain on affordable care act, they're finding it's not exactly what they worked so hard to find their way to as well. >> mr. chairman, i would look to remind the committee that the wizard of oz is not a documentary. now, all of this talk of dorothy and toto and yellow brick road and yet unborn kathleen sebelius on a tricycle was all because the secretary of health and human services spent most of her working life in kansas. >> kathleen sebelius is former governor of kansas. okay. well you are not in kansas anymore-thee. you are in the big time. >> and nothing, i mean nothing makes you feel you are in the big time more than the number of times members of congressmention the wizard of ozzen a wic ein a important hearing. when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word. (little girl) no! saw her first da
, in the middle of mulling over whether or not to take time off, they looked at the cal tar, looked at their agenda, made some hard decisions. next year the house will be in session for the desire year for a grand total of 113 days, significantly less than half of the workdays in the year will be days they even work. that's even less than they worked this year. this is the least productive congress on record in america. and they're going to work less. this is what working 113 days looks like. shaded days are workdays. everything else is not. nice, right? thank you, eric cantor. on the one hand, they get paid a minimum of $174,000 a year to work this schedule, which is ridiculous. on the sunny side, maybe we should be grateful when they are there less. if you don't come to work, that's less time to destroy the government that you technically work in. in honor of our house of representatives that not only does not work, they don't like to work and they rarely show up for it. and in honor of my great pride and excitement of being on the simpson's this weekend, it is appropriate to cele
. because they created a mat mat cal equation, it results in the number zero of civilians killed. >> also, the frequency of these attacks, josh, in one three-month period you report american troops staged 1700 night raids. we don't hear about that but we do hear about on friday a drone strike in pakistan killed a taliban chief mehsud. that's created with i won't say great celebration but a positive. american public hears about high-priority targets eliminated but rarely the civilian casualties, the way the drone strikes undermined american credibility overseas. >> the unanswered question about scope actually goes to the case the white house makes about this. when you say this is a smarter way of waging war, you can compare it to policy under bush administration september 11th attacks where we engaged in two full scale ground wars in iraq and afghanistan putting 100,000 american troops on the ground and probably leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths in iraq due to ensuing chaos and civil war. this is a strategy that has a much smaller footprint that i have to assume involves fewer civ
cal family and clinton political family had come so far it was something they were willing to take a look at. they were right it didn't happen. they were right results didn't argue for going forward. make no mistake they looked at it because of the perilous political position the president found him in at that point. >> john, one of the points that's just fascinating you both bring up is the trip the president makes to his hometown chicago he's home, makes a rare trip to his house. get you to respond. now alone in his old house for just the third night since he had become president he started rummaging through boxes, digging, digging until suddenly he found it. a small nour plan panel paper booklet the world had never seen before. on the front gynecological hospital, in honolulu. on the back was a picture of a hawaiian queen on the inside page were his name, his mother's name and his date of birth. does it suggest the birther controversy was weighing on him more than he ever let on, more than we knew? >> absolutely. at that point in time you recall donald trump was making a big dea
all of any lit cal capital he has left on this? then what about immigration? and what about the budget? >> why does he need political capital? he's not running for anything. and maybe -- >> he needs to have influence to get things done. >> maybe the american people will influence some of the republicans just to do the right thing. >> do you think the polls will matter? do you think when you go back to washingt washington, congressman? >> maybe we have the spiritual leaders and the wall street leaders together to say something about what's happening to, in. it's not a question of the president's polls. i don't care what the president's polls are as long as he's doing the right thing legislatively, economically and morally. if he's trying to get health care for everybody, good. if he's trying to get immigration reform which is good for america and good for business, good. if he's trying to raise money to have better infrastructure and create jobs, good. >> let me ask you about that because the infrastructure is part of what he sees as a grand bargain ask he's still talking about that. he
obama care for three election cycles. >> i have to jump on the electoral cal clus, which is what about the government shutdown? we have totally forgotten about the government shutdown and how the republican party blundered that. where people were out of work for week, billions of dollars were lost. so we're coming -- but the aca has obfuscated this, and this is going to be a real danger for the democratic party if it is not resolved. if we get to november and it's not worked out, come to december. >> americans haven't forgot. if we look at opinions about the republican party, they have declined as a result of that shutdown. they have not come back. in september, it was 44% negative. early october during the shutdown, 53% negative. late october, early novshgs we're still at 53% negative. people don't seem to have forgotten about the shutdown. >> anybody in washington, but let obesity fair, if you live or reside in washington and have an elected official -- >> yeah, yeah. >> bad number right there. >> not that much. >> but maybe that is the win. i will put that on the table as a possibil
outside and play because i'm scared. >> joining me now, ronnian cal lick covering the story. ronnia with a welcome for anyone who did not see the complete testimony from the children and their father, how compelling was their story? how was it received on the hill? >> well, they traveled 7,000 miles to come and tell congress about the drone strike that killed their grandmother and only five members of congress attended. so but the five members of congress who did attend almost all apologized to the family for the strike. and testimony was heartbreaking. it was very moving, as well. it brought congressman alan grayson to tears as well as several other people in the room. and i think it's really important for really all americans to see this because this is the first time that drone strike victims have been able to directly address congress and the american public. and to actually put a face on the people who are being impacted by this program. >> ronnia, did you get any answers as to why only five of our elected officials were there for that testimony? >> well, congressman gray son s
these ideas -- there are myth cal cancellations of all health insurance, people should read their policy because if they're getting canceled, it is because it doesn't cover mental health screenings, doesn't cover mammograms, doesn't cover prostate exams, if you were to ever use it, it would be canceled because you reach a cap. all of these things that if you ever actually tried to use that junk insurance policy, it will be a nightmare. the federal government said it is illegal to sell people junk policies and if you have one, it has to be converted to a -- >> what you're arguing is that people who said, you know, the president said in the camera, if you like your insurance, you can keep it. you're saying, hey, you didn't like your insurance. you don't know. >> you didn't use it. >> that's a tough sell. he should have said, i guess, something more along the lines of the insurance you have is awful, and we're going to get rid of it and change it. >> this gets the -- i want to get to this side of it as well. we're talking about, you know, what -- this absolutely could still work and what ha
that's, i get that cal clax, too, if you are in the white house and the more you make a show of this the more you will be embarrassed if you can't win or come close to winning. do you think your party right now, governor whitman talks about in the state of fuge, the national lack of involvement. is your party setting itself up here, two, three years from now, you will look back and say, geeze, we built christie up a little too much? >> i don't think so. of course, we were saved by the virginia race. we will win in virginia. the republicans have a weak candidate this election will be a draw. will you have a democrat win in virginia. it's off to the next election. >> in terms of the image that we show that nbc poll that shows christie, the only republican poll, nationally, it's like a two to one spread. when you look to all of the problems, we've talked so much about the political party in 2012, it seems to me like you nominate christie, superficially, you will solve all those problems? >> it will be an interesting race, remember, steve, since world war ii, there has been no 12
notes. he said he would be here. willie, mike barn cal in new york and joining us here at the table in washington, we have -- >> eight people. when sam comes back we can play softball. >> okay. >> can we do match game or something? >> all right. we have the host of msnbc's "hardball," chris matthew, the author of "tip and the gipper." and chief white house correspondent and host of daily run down, chuck todd and msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee michael steele. >> we have a lot to talk about. chris matthews, the president has been hit with a one, two, three regarding the affordable care act, one the website that we've been talking about for a long time. number two the "l.a. times" article talking about the sticker shock effect which actually will have more of an impact probably in the long run and thirdly, lisa myer's report talking about those assurances the president talked about people getting insurance not ended up being true at the end. the white house seems to be in a position they need to get out in front of all of these stories.
